MASTER'S OF SCIENCE IN MOVEMENT SCIENCE
SPECIALIZATION - BIOMECHANICS


MISSION OF THE PROGRAM

Out mission is to provide a quality graduate educational experience with
emphasis on understanding and analyzing the mechanisms and consequences of
human movement in all aspects of sport and daily life. Upon completion of
this program, you will earn a Master of Science in Movement Science with a
specialization in Biomechanics.

One of the advantages of Barry's program includes a solid laboratory
component. Hands-on experience with state-of-the-art equipment will enable
you to gain the skills necessary to correctly apply selected quantitative
movement analysis techniques to activities of daily living, sport and the
workplace.

Another feature of Barry's program that will maximize your opportunities for
